    Its in. After an entire year sitting in its crate that I hauled behind the front seats of the car all the way from California, the Aughkstra (stained glass window) is installed in its new location here in Florida.

    I don't *EVER* want to do that again...

    Crate disassembled, pix coming soon...

    Just got through watching the movie 'Suicide Squd' Extended Cut. Margot Robbie is HOT as Harley Quinn.

    Just watched the latest Thor movie. It was OK, wasn't as good as most of the Marvel movies. 
    Watched it last night. Wasn't bad. Went overboard on the campy humor..........
    Thor is  a good character in doses. I see him in more of a supporting role, not the lead. 
    It should be an action movie with some good one liners thrown in. Not a one liner movie with some action thrown in....

    Only 2 of the 10 transaction they cried on my Debit card went through. Bank reinstated the $$$$ but now I have to wait for a new card.... Definitely more than one person. They got a meal at Outback and ordered $64 of Domino's on the same day in  a different part of NC.... All the denied orders were from California.

    The local fruit stand has fresh strawberries...........   Just have to eat them with a butter recipe yellow cake and a little milk.

    That's some interesting work! He's good at it; turning something like that is safer than an electric powered wood lathe. I wonder, though, is his left leg a lot more 'buff' than his right leg from all that exercise? That might make him walk around in circles.

    I scored a 37 inch long piece of round brass rod that is 1.5" in diameter at the scrap metal emporium this morning. My .22 cal. inline muzzleloader is gonna have a brass receiver.

    Slept on the couch last night. No, I aint in the dogbox, you have to have a KOTCB for that.
    Film crew arrived yesterday afternoon to set up the house for the shoot.
    They decided that for the bedroom scenes they wanted the option of using any of the bedrooms...........so I had to clean all my crap out of the one I use.
    The only vacant bed left was the couch.
    I told them if they used my room  then I expected to star in the production. THAT went down like a lead balloon!

    When I told them it was safe to leave their camera's and lighting equipment overnight, one of the guys asked me why. I told him that after they had finished shooting and left, I had a crew coming in to shoot porn and it would save me hiring gear.......... :D

    Some people just dont have a sense of humour.............

    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    It's trying times like these that I am reminded of George Carlin's 'Seven Words You Can't Say on TV' skit. I won't link it, but it's on Youtube for anyone not familiar with it. He only listed 7 words; we got WAY more here! :smiley:

    bet it's the gasket between the aluminum core and the plastic tanks.

    whoever engineered that should be beaten with a length of heater hose.

    I can't finger point the leak yet but it's the plastic I think. My 03 Wrangler popped a leak on the top plastic. I went all aluminum on mine when it happened. The aftermarket aluminum one doesn't get good reviews on the JKU. Mopar one went 110,000 miles. May just go that route, Your right though, should have never been manufactured with plastic. Should be aluminum from the factory.

    So, a Mauser has a little pocket what for letting the trigger assembly sit down flush on the bottom of the action. 
    My contraption doesnt, and can't, have that. So I'm making some "field adjustments" to try before I say eff it and use the original parts. We shall see 
    Drill and tap the receiver for a stud at the correct position for the striker at full cock and the sear holding it back. Mill sides of stud to width of trigger housing. Drill stud for pin. Install trigger with spring in place and pin it. EZPZ, done and done! Don't make it out to be harder than it is!

    Nope. Not that easy.   
    1. Dingus end of the sear won't be long enough to engage bolt. 
    2. Puts the trigger housing at an extreme angle of the dangle. Have to pull the trigger a looong ways to get it to trip. 

    Im going to lop off the ears of the trigger, to get it closer to the action. and drill a hole through the sides (roughly same level as trigger pivot) and try the stud thing like you mentioned. 
    That will work, too. Or if ya feel lucky, you can extend the sear. If ya screw that up, I can send you another trigger sans spring. If ya STILL get stuck, I can recommend a trigger that will work, but it's also a LOT more complicated as to parts than the Mauser trigger group.

    Back when I had my '97 TJ, a local shop resold all aluminum racing radiators that I replaced my 'WTH' Plastic tanked radiator with when the gasket let go.  Ran great until I stupidly sold it.  Loved that Jeep.
